Top 6: Great Remakes

In Episode 42, our Top 6 list was about movies you'd like to see remade. Now, in Episode 44, we're going to cover remakes that did happen and were great.

Stephen and I took slightly different takes on the topic, as we sometimes do. Stephen compiled a list of six great remakes, regardless of whether or not they improved upon their originals. Sam restricted himself to superior remakes, in some cases picking remakes that are not actually great films but do improve upon their originals in some significant way.

What are your favorite remakes?

As always, we recommend listening to the episode before reading further.
